day and evening and year, and never have been through anything like this, but it's a beautiful thing to watch and a beautiful thing to behold and we are going to make america great again. >> trouncing his republican opponents in the hoosier state, trump's lead was enough to place him within just 200 delegates of the nomination and that brought ted cruz's campaign to a sudden and abrupt end. >> from the beginning, i've said that i would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. tonight, i'm sorry to say, it appears that path has been foreclosed. >> some of cruz's supporters did not take this news very well. >> i've been working in the republican party
i have always, always gotten behind whoever won. it is the first time ever i will not be able to do that! >> this morning cruz will be waking up at home in houston, texas, but not before accidentally elbowing his wife heidi shortly after suspending his campaign. earlier trump attacked cruz and his miami for what trump said was a roll in jfk's assassination but trump quickly reversed his tone after his win, thanking cruz for the well-fought contest. >> just so you understand, ted cruz, i don't know if he likes me or if he doesn't like me, but he is one hell of a competitor. he is a tough, smart guy. and he has got an amazing future. he's got an amazing future. so i want to congratulate ted. >> and rnc chairman reince priebus went to twitter hailing trump as

party unity. and while the republican fight for the nomination is all but sealed, remarkably, it's the democratic contest that is still influx. bernie sanders pulled off an upset in indiana and beat hillary clinton by single digits after clinton largely abandoned the state last week and pulling ad dollars and staff and gave sanders 45 new delegates to on clinton's 38. while sanders' win gives his campaign new life, clinton, like trump, is now just 200 delegates away from clenching the democratic nomination. the clinton camp remains fixed on the general election with campaign chair don podesta saying throughout this campaign, donald trump has demonstrated he is too divisive and lacks the temperament to lead our nation and the free world. with so much at stake, donald trump is too big of a risk. hillary clinton has proven that she has the strength to keep us safe and in an uncertain world
a. the campaign is fund-raising off trump's likely nomination tweeting donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee. chip in now if you agree. we can't let him become president. senator elizabeth warren had very strong words for the gop tweeting, quote, there is more enthusiasm for donald trump among leaders of the kkk than leaders of the political party he now controls. with clinton and trump assured almost to go against one another in the general election, it will be the first election in history that pits the most unlikable candidates of each party against each other. and donald trump will be matt and savannah's guest on later on "today" and you don't want to miss pj. joining me is best selling author ellison henderson. >> no one thought it could happen, least of all donald trump. >> in the beginning you didn't think he would get the delegate. >> i got to tell you, i plead guilty. find me someone who thought he
i think he was as shocked as anyone when this thing started gaining momentum. by the end, he thought he deserved it. >> what does it say about voters, especially those in indiana, want for their next president? >> you know, it is not so much about ideology. we thought america was divided liberal and conservative and red/blue. it seems like the division is more about attitude and donald did such a good job, expressing that attitude of so many people are feeling. >> he had to pull the curtain back and shows you what is going on when running for president. he showed you the good, the ugly, the bad running a campaign. were you surprised that ted cruz announced he is suspending his campaign? after all this talk of a contested convention over and over again? >> it's a year of surprises. you've got to say that. yeah. i don't think this time yesterday many people were expecting that. he seemed like he wanted to keep going. he did seem to have the money to
keep going. i mean, he is right. there really wasn't a viable path to the nomination. but no, i think he ran out of emotional gas, i guess. >> do you think cruz supporters will rally around trump? >> that lady we heard from a moment ago -- >> so upset. >> represents something. listen. we know historically that in the end, most of the little ducklings swim back home, right? that will be true of the bernie supporters on the democratic side and the cruz supporters on the republican side. but, you know, it's a process. there are stages of grief we always talk about. >> right. they are in effect now, right? >> i think three or four at this point. >> thank you, ellis. we are learning more with the u.s. navy s.e.a.l. killed in an attack against isis fighters. he is identified as charles keating iv, grandson of charles keating jr. who was involved in a savings and loan skajed in the late 1980s. charlie keating seen here with his fiaee
